Good Morning Morning Glory

This morning was beautiful. I'm sorry I missed getting pictures....the sunrise was magical. It made everything look like it was glowing gold. It happened so fast it was gone before I could grab my camera.

I did capture this little guy unknowingly...to him or me...I zoomed in on the morning glory picture above and found him.

To see some really great shots of hummingbirds visit Deena's Nestled in the Singing Woods blog here.

Autumn is definitely in the air. I'm sitting on our back porch and there is a little chill.

Also there are no songbirds singing just an occasional chirp from some bird proclaiming his territory.

My little keets are making enough noise though. They certainly are busy little things.

Today I am going to visit my good friend Audrey from 1824 Antiques. She lets me sell my wares from her shop. We are planning on working in the store to get it ready for a Fall Harvest Gathering on September 27 - 28. Hopefully we will get some work done...we have so much fun chatting we tend to forget working.
Her and David (her hubby) came to visit us this past weekend at our cottage on the Allegheny River. Such a nice surprise. She just started a blog, check it out here for another picture from her visit. http://1824antiques.blogspot.com/

I promise to have an update soon. I have been working hard but hardly working....lots of pieces and parts everywhere that will soon be a scarecrow, pumpkin, mousie, witch etc. I'm trying to get any last moments in with Lydia before she goes back to school on Monday. Next week once I get my ducks in order (or however you say it) I will have the date for you.

Have a happy morning! xoxoxo

I'm a little Melancholy

We have had a busy summer. One more week and its back to school for Lydia. I used to dread that growing up. Hearing the locust and seeing the goldenrod meant it was that time again. I am feeling a little sad. I will miss her and our special times together during the day. She is of course very excited to get back to school and see her friends...she's a little bored with her old Mom.

I AM looking forward to the crisp days of autumn with the lovely smells the cool wind brings. The bluest skies with flocks of geese flying over the house calling as they go. Lots of pumpkins and those first apples that taste so much better than those from the store.

Below is a few pictures of my latest offerings for the Primitive Gathering Group http://www.theprimitivegathering.com/ You can click on the picture for a close up view. Each doll is $40 plus shipping. Thanks always for visiting and have a happy day!

"A day for toil, an hour for sport, But for a friend is life too short."

~ Emerson

I love this picture....even then with lots of work to be done girlfriends are still girlfriends.

Today is my good friend Jessica's birthday. She makes me laugh and knows me well. I've been thinking about her all day. It's been a tough year for her. I want to wish her a "jump in the creek and be crazy" birthday! I love you and hope to see you soon!!

Home at Last!!

We have been in Santa Barbara, CA for the past few weeks. What a beautiful city! Mountains, beaches, gardens & lots of history. One of my favorite places in this country, everywhere is just breathtaking. My husband and I lived there for a few years back in the late 1980's (boy do I feel old). We like to come back every other year just to get our California fix and my cravings for good Mexican food...we have a checklist of restaurants!!!

Santa Barbara Mission Rose Garden....scratch and sniff ~ don't you wish?

Santa Barbara Pier view from the Harbor

Lego Land ~ New Orleans....can you imagine making this??? I thought it was amazing.

Well after all that relaxing (and eating) I am so ready to get back to work. An update will be coming soon. I'll keep you all posted!

Time to work off my "Burrito Belly"

Happy Summer Evening...
